The double Olympic gold medalist in the 5,000m and 10,000m described the new arrivals as ‘very exciting’. He said:
“My wife has been holding on so long and it’s great that she held on this long and didn’t give birth on the track (at the Olympics),”
When he was asked to compare fatherhood to winning the Olympic gold, Farah said:
“It’s completely different. It’s out of your control, it was weird, but as a father I’m very proud. To have three kids in the family is going to be exciting. If my wife has another two more twin boys I’ll be a happy man. It runs in the family, so maybe that’s why we’re having twins.”
Mo and his wife Tania have yet to decide on names, but are planning to have the names inscribed on the medals once they are chosen.
